a ways to go. there is so much to do but we have accomplished quite a bit. i know former mayor brown, who is not here yet, but he will be dashing in, let him know i said this. if he were the president of the united states we would be the 186th country it ratify cdal i say that because i know he and his history was the very first to sign up our city, it pass the ordinance when he was the mayor, to make sure we were on the road by abiding by those principles and then when i had a chance as director of public works i took up the helm for that department. you know, those years, they were really blue collar attitudes in public works, but we found the women leaders that we could acknowledge and promote and it became an even better agency for that very reason. so i want to again acknowledge that history. we still have a lot to do since our country has yet to ratify these principles. i hope that we will get closer and closer to do that or if not do it now, it is something that i think we've really been embarrassed about as a country not to do this on a national level. but i join you today

putting together, willie brown, and i know willie brown for years. and i said, willie, i think the majority of your homeless are mentally ill. he said majority? he said you're way too conservative. he as said the vast majority. he said if i could get them to take their medication, i could save this city millions and millions of dollars. the department of health talks about saving money, you're not saving money. you're spending all of that money and way more in police and enforcement activities. you're putting people in prison for life. and look at the guy who was put in prison who was a truck driver. they couldn't handle him because he was schizophrenic, paranoid schizophrenic. so, they put him in zoll tear i for a year. when he came out he wanted to sue the state. the state wouldn't let him. so, what did he do? he planted his 18 wheeler in the side of the state capital and cost the city $80 million. i just want to mention one more thing, and that is that i have a very dear friend who is indicted for murder in san francisco. he cut off the head of a man over -- alleged he cut o
that kind of information on-line about a week after we held our first hearing, governor brown took them down. so, it is really not a matter of applying the law in my opinion, it is a matter of policy and the way that you want the law to be applied. it is not black and white. and it is something that the sunshine ordinance itself says whenever there is a conflict or there are two paths to go down, that the voters prefer to go down the path that leads to the most open government. thank you. >> i work for laguna honda before i was driven out of there (inaudible). i want to under score what dr. kerr said about the fact that you all have the responsibility to deal with whistle blower realtation, and the events are very important in society and clearly you are finding of no whistle blower retaliation when the government project finds that the vast majority are retaliated against, begs the question as to whether you guys are doing what you are supposed to be doing, thank you. >> next, item on the agenda, is the discussion and action on ethics complaint 08110816 and 09110816, alleging that executive
agencies is off the hook. since 1999, willie brown issued orders to every one of his documents and commissions not to comply with sunshine. i have been doing immediate disclosure requests across the departments in san francisco, none of the department heads have done the form 700 certification required by law and the whole city is out of order. to quote al pacino and go giants. >> hi there, i am one of the two whistle blowers, and from my perspective what i am asking for is actually not confidential investigatory information, what we wanted to know about is whether there was an administrative memo during the time that the ethics commission sat on our case for six months while the two of us were driven out of laguna honda ordering the whistle blower to not concurrently investigate the case. and in theory, according to your rules, the ethics commission should have sent a written memo to the whistle blower program, or they should have carried on a concurrent investigation but they didn't, and we would like to see the memo. it is not idle curiosity, we served the city for 43 years
will take credit for all three counties. i told jerry, i'm never going to complain to jerry brown, what he to happen in the state legislature, because i used the first year and a half to insulate myself from all of that, emotionally as well as programmatically to say i'm not going to let the state hurt our city or the federal government. we've got to innovate our way out of this economic dole drum and we are doing so with inviting people here. those of you who take this word challenge, and really can really seriously bring that to fore with your best ideas, this is what i'm doing with all these technology companies. i'm not satisfied with just hosting a new company in the city, i want to know what they're doing, who's working there, where they're coming from, what they plan for the five or 10 years and how we can help them grow. as they're growing their jobs i want to know technologically how we can help. that's why i love going to accelerators, to find out what are the next five years that we're incubating so when it comes like what happened last week with dr. yam naka working at gladston
not understood] brown buffalo footsteps pounding of valencia corridor and he was shouting poetry [speaker not understood] junkies nodding in their wasted [speaker not understood] in the hotel royale, the mission's finest. and even the furniture was angry. and i tell the waiters at the bus stop, the waitresses, the flower sellers, the blind guitarist [speaker not understood] at a purple sky, the shirtless vagrant vagabond ranting at a parking meter, the spray paint visionary setting fire to the word. and i knew this was the last call. we were tired of living from the scraps of others. we were tired of dying for our own chunk of nothing. and i saw this barrio, this city as a freight train. a crazy mexican bus careening out of control, a mutiny aboard the battle ship, and every port hole filled with anger. and we were going to stay angry. and we were not leaving, not ever leaving el corazon [speaker not understood] of the mission. the [speaker not understood] ends here. (applause) >> and i just want to point out that only san francisco do poets get invited to come to the legislative center.
we have said that is in this cup will be good to the last drop. >> thank you, reverend brown. think the mayor. think members of the press. thank you to the community and the board of supervisors. thank you for being here. god bless you. >> hello, i am with the san francisco parks department serious we are featuring some wonderful locations in your and very own backyard. this is your chance to find your heart in san francisco with someone special. we are here at the lovely and historic palace of fine arts, located in the bustling marina district. originally built for the 1950's exposition, the palace is situated along san francisco's waterfront. it is ada accessible and is reached by the 28, 30, and 91 bus lines. with its rotunda, columns, uncut the reflecting waters against the eucalyptus trees, it is one of the most romantic settings for special dates, and memorable proposals. it is also a perfect spot where you can relax with that special someone while listening to the water and fountain in the lagoon. beautiful to view from many locations, and inside is an ideal place to walk aro
as the naacp, represented by a pastor reverend amos brown and his staff, along with the police chief, or public safety clusters, juvenile probation, a deprivation, community-based agencies, city services office, and the number of community groups that have engaged me and my staff and all of the supervisors are on this very serious question around public safety in our city. many of you have known and heard in the past couple of months my very deep concerns about our safety, particularly of our young kids, and particularly of our african- american kids. not everybody can be a gabby or an olympic hero. not everybody can do that. not everybody can participate in the 5000 jobs that we are creating in the internship programs that are paid that we signaled this summer. not everybody can be successful in everything that we do to try to set up those conditions for people to be successful. there are some who, unfortunately, touch our juvenile and adult probation criminal-justice system, and we try to find ways to correct that path and to create supportive mechanisms. we are rich in services in many ways
, there are the hearings themselves. these set up with requirements of brown act and sunshine and 72 hour notice and all of those things. that is the minimum they think the public considers necessary for an opportunity to see what is going on in policy bodies, and to be able to respond, but in addition to that as some people have referenced we have had a series of town hall meetings and one in south venice and tried to invite the taxi industry to those trying to have dialogue. that has been productive over the years and continues to be productive. we are trying to institutionalize that and have one meeting a week and each one is a six hour process so we have a segment from 130 to 430 so night drivers can come and we have another session at night so day drivers can come after they finish their shift. we are trying to do our best to allow an opportunity for dialogue. as was referenced there is also the taxi advisory council that met for two years and that was a policy body so minutes were taken. they were published and in addition to that director riskin has implemented a policy that we are struggling
willie brown will look like. it is very exciting to see this, you know, brand new middle school come to life, at least in the presentation. the architects showed the kinds of finishes and colors that will be incorporated into the design. what i found most interesting was, one of the biggest messages about the design of the school was that it would incorporate elements of restorative practice and circle and sort of really facilitate conversation and dialogues based on this school district's emphasis on that. it was really very exciting. secondly, we discussed future agenda items for the committee and the meeting schedule for november and december. so the next meeting of building and grounds will be on monday, november 19th, at 6:00 and i really do urge my colleagues on this school board to come to that meeting. we will be talking about... i am sorry, number 1 6? >> you said december 19th? >> november... >> i thought that you said december. >> november 19th. >> we will be discussing 1950 mission, and other properties that are currently being unused and we have a very detailed plan
morris brown college in georgia. it was due to a huge part for the omega boys club paying for my tuition and providing me as well as many first generation college students the opportunity to go on to college and graduate. so it wasn't just about talking the talk)v)vpñyñ in terms of hoe eliminate violence and how we work to make changes andgwñ  transformation in the community but it wasn[ñ?ñ? also about then behind it. having the opportunity to go to school, go to high school, and knowing and understanding that will be able to pay your tuition, takes the stress=ñ?ñ? a opportunity for change. so we just want to thank dr. marshall and jack, for the work they've done over the past 25 years and the work that they continue -- and not only did only do they continue to work in the community, as you see they're not here tonight, and they apologize for that, but they also instilled in us, like dr. marshall's grandmother would say, the more you know, the more you owe. what we continue to do as alumni is definitely in part of what was instilled in us as a part of this legacy and organization
